The MU Center for Health Ethics is excited to partner with DigiHealth, a multidisciplinary team of digital storytellers.
From Facebook to Electronic Health Records, the ever-expanding forms of digital media bombarding clinicians, educators, and health care consumers pose complex ethical challenges.

- Explore how digital media is being utilized to enhance health education and service delivery in order to promote patient-centered care and shared decision making.
- Discuss concerns related to unethical use of digital storytelling and media which may result in exploitation, personal gain, and manipulation of vulnerable populations.
